Review: Ophoria Rapture No. 5

I’ve had the Ophoria Rapture No. 5 for a while now and, honestly, I don’t have a lot to say about it. It’s really a case of form follows function, in a good way. It didn’t “wow” me. It doesn’t have any fancy features that have never been seen before, it doesn’t go above and beyond the call of duty, it’s just well-made, does what it’s supposed to do and does it well, and is fairly decently priced for a top-quality silicone toy.

Rapture No. 5 is made of completely body-safe platinum silicone01, Ophoria’s own blend. It’s fairly silky with minimal finger-drag and pleasing to touch. It’s quite hard for silicone, with little give when you squeeze it. It’s made especially for anal use but can be used vaginally as well, and works well for both. I would say it is better anally, but I love graduated bulbs on anal toys since it goes along so well with the way that the anal muscles work. Makes sense, since it’s basically a dildo version of a set of anal beads.

It’s about average length and a little over average thickness at it’s thickest, but the first bulb starts at half of the thickness of the last. I would say most of the time I use it I don’t put it all the way in, preferring to gently thrust with it over inserting it and leaving it there since it doesn’t have a decent neck on it. It’s definitely made for thrusting.

One thing that does bring it above most other anal toys like it is the handle. Sported by the Beyond No. 3 also made by Ophoria, Njoy Pfun Plug, LELO Bob, and the LELO Insignia line, among others, the cut-out handle is becoming somewhat popular, especially among luxury toy makers. It is a wonderful feature, and I highly recommend this type of handle on a toy to many others, unless you’re specifically looking for a harness-compatible product. This style of handle makes toys easier to grip and maneuver overall, making them great products to own.

The Rapture No. 5 reminds me a lot of the Pleasure No. 6 in that they’re both average toys made of quality silicone and decently priced. They’re solidly made, pleasing to the eye, and does the job they’re made to do. I simply have no bad words to say about them.

Luckily not every toy needs a “wow” factor. In fact many of the fancy new tech savvy toys that are out there are expensive and don’t do all that they should, making the solidly good toys that much better than those that fluctuate between awesome features and little performance. Plus, Ophoria toys are pretty, if not wowomgawesome.

Much thanks to Ophoria for sending me their Rapture No. 5 to review!

Review: Sh! Whirly Girly 2 Glow

The Whirly Girly 2

Sh! makes a whole mess of Whirly Girly dildos in slightly different shapes and sizes. They are all 100% silicone and completely body-safe and all have adorable heart-shaped bases which are excellent to grip or in a strap-on harness. As far as dildos go, the Whirly Girly 2 is mostly unremarkable, it’s relatively short and thin (made especially for anal penetration), slightly curved, and has swirls coming up around it kind of like a candy cane. The thing that sets it apart from other dildos of it’s kind is one very special power. It glows in the dark!

That’s right, this is a 100% silicone dildo that glows in the dark! I cannot express how excited I was when I learned about this. If you don’t like this style but are as excited as I am at the idea of a glow in the dark dildo Sh! also makes the Glow Cupid 3 which is longer and thicker.

I couldn’t myself get a good picture of it’s glowing abilities, so this will have to do.

Like most glow in the dark things it needs to be around a light source prior to glowing, so if you keep it in a toybox or something similar which does not often see light it won’t glow right away. When it’s sufficiently charged it’s really quite bright in a dark room, very easy to see, and every inch of it glows. Now I want a second one to have glow-in-the-dark dildo (lightsaber) duels. There is all sorts of fun that a glow in the dark dildo can have that a regular dildo cannot.

Aside from the glow in the dark aspect of the Whirly Girly 2 is mostly just a good solid anal dildo and is excellent for use in a harness. The heart-shaped base isn’t as thick as some bases but it’s fairly big and the shape of it is easily seen around an o-ring. The silicone itself is about medium-firm and slippery smooth, easy to use with just a little bit of lube (water-based only). Since it is fairly thin it might not be very satisfying vaginally for some, but it’s perfect for an anal beginner or working up to larger toys.

The inner geek in me is just giddy about this toy. I love it. While it’s not the most exciting shape and size to me it makes up for it with it’s glowing abilities.

The heart-shaped base!

Thanks so much to Sh! Women’s Erotic Emporium for sending me a Whirly Girly 2!

Review: Crystal Delights Plug – Long

I’m normally not a big fan of round bases on anal plugs. I prefer my plug bases to be oval or rectangular, longer on one dimension than the other, so that they can nestle perfectly between cheeks and not irritate the wearer. For this plug I make an exception, however, since I absolutely love the look of it, it’s butt jewelry, how could I not love it! It’s actually not nearly as uncomfortable as other plugs with round bases that I have worn, too. This seems strange to me, since it’s glass and therefore a harder material (the others were silicone) but perhaps it is the rounded edges of the plug’s base that make it much easier to wear.

I just couldn’t pass up a well made glass plug with a gorgeous red Swarovski crystal in the bottom. It comes in two sizes, regular and small, both with the same size bulb on the end but with different “neck” lengths. The small or shorter one came about because reviewers were noticing that they couldn’t get the long plug to sit right, it was sticking out at the end and uncomfortable. The great owner, Shellie took this complaint and made a shorter toy! That’s the sign of a great company right there.

I asked for the long version of the plug, hoping I wouldn’t have that issue because I know I tend to prefer long plugs to short. Luckily my plug fits just right and feels wonderful. Like I already mentioned, when I got it I expected to dislike the base for wearing, but tolerate it because of the look of the toy, and I was super pleasantly surprised with how comfortable it is. Really this plug is delightful for wearing any fine afternoon01… I mean any time you want something in your ass. I love the firmness of the glass and had no problem laying down or sitting up with it in, and didn’t experience any issues with the length of the neck.

The only time it’s a little uncomfortable is when I try to add something else that is hard in my cunt along with the plug in my ass. While I can do it, the entry especially is a little uncomfortable, and takes a little work. Softer materials such as flesh and squishy silicone are not a problem.

I also had Onyx try out the plug, since it’s glass it’s non-porous and can easily be shared between partners as long as it is disinfected between uses, especially since it’s an anal toy you don’t want any of that bacteria that is natural and healthy in your body but might be harmful to another person to be spread. He said it felt exceptional, especially when orgasming since it’s hard and feels great to clench around. It didn’t quite hit his p-spot in the way other curved toys have, but it was still wonderful.

The plug also comes with a black padded roll-up suede and leather pouch with band closures kind of reminiscent of a moleskin. The pouch itself does not indicate the contents which is a good thing if you care about sort of thing and you’re not the type to go talking to just about anyone about sex toys. Plus it’s super protective so you don’t have to worry about damage being done to the toy.

The Crystal Delights Plugs come in a rainbow of colors (well, just about) including an Aurora Borealis color that is multicolored itself, so if red isn’t one of your favorite colors like it is mine, you have your pick. I even have a Blue one that I will be giving away on Pleasurists soon!

Review: Nexus Gyro

I keep wanting to pronounce this toy yee-ro like the delicious Greek sandwich, but it is actually named after the action you’re supposed to be able to do with it, gyrate, so it is supposed to be pronounced jy-ro. This makes much more sense, of course, but isn’t nearly as amusing.

Like all Nexus toys Gyro is made from 100% medical-grade silicone and is an amazingly soft and silky silicone like Nexus seems to be known for (or at least is known for in my mind). Their silicone is different than that I have encountered in any other company. Since it is silicone you can share it between partners and orifices as long as you sterilize it between them (going from vagina to anus is okay but do not go the other way around without sterilizing it first!), see care instructions below for further details.

The Gyro is meant to be a hands-free prostate stimulator, though works wonderfully as a g-spot stimulator on a female body as well. Nexus even has a neat how to use the Nexus Gyro guide on their site in case you’re not quite sure. Basically, it has a very firm round base which enables you to sit on it and rock your pelvis around to get more than the usual insertable stimulation without having to use a hand to thrust it inside of yourself.

How does it work? Very well, actually. The delightful curve of the toy hits just the right internal places. I’ve used it on both Onyx and myself, both thrusting and rocking and it is quite exceptional. I don’t think I’ve encountered any other dildos that are made for this kind of hands-free gyrating stimulation.

It is just slightly over average thickness and shorter than a lot of other toys because it is made to be inserted and rocked upon rather than thrusted, though it can be thrusted with as well. For those size queens who enjoy thicker and/or longer toys Nexus also makes the Gyro Extreme.

Since the base is so round and bulbous (about 2 1/2 inches in diameter! Not to be inserted) it is uncomfortable to keep it inserted or wear it for very long periods of time. Nexus also has considered the needs of those who would prefer to use something like the Gyro as a plug and created Silo.

A big thank you to Nexus for providing me with the Gyro!

Review: Nexus GPlay Trio

This is the first of many Nexus reviews, a wonderful company specializing in anal toys and g- or p-spot stimulation. While there are some toys in their line which don’t quite work with a female anatomy the majority of them are unisex (including a super sexy new stainless steel toy that is still “coming soon.” Want!). The GPlay Trio is an excellent anal starter kit, both to introduce you to Nexus in general and for any anal beginner.

All three toys are made of a 100% medical-grade silicone sleeve covering a long inserted vibrator with controls on the bottom. The silicone is incredibly smooth and silky, quite unique to Nexus toys, and somewhere between the usual matte and smooth silicone types. The vibrator can be removed for ease of cleaning (see care instructions below), but without the vibrating bit inserted the plugs are pretty useless as they’re not stiff enough to insert. The small and medium plugs have one vibration setting and the large plug has five, all controlled by a single power button on the base.

nexus gplay trio

The shape and size of each of these are excellent. I especially love the base, something I tend to talk a lot about in my anal toy reviews as I far prefer oval or long rectangular bases to circular ones. These bases fit snugly between the cheeks and make the plugs extremely comfortable to wear. The only thing I would want to change to make these perfect is to make the neck slightly longer, they have a tendency to slip out if not paid attention to, especially the smaller two. The curved head makes for excellent g-spot stimulation regardless of sex, and the curves of the plugs feel very nice when thrusting.

Having three identically shaped plugs makes me feel a little like Goldilocks: “this one’s too small… this one’s too big… ahh, just right.” Though that’s not completely accurate, the small one is a bit too small, but the large and medium are both perfect depending on the situation

As I said, the small purple plug is a little too small for most experienced anal enthusiasts but is delightfully adorable and completely non-threatening so this would be the perfect beginner plug set for someone interested but perhaps a little daunted by the idea of sticking something up the backdoor. It really is about the size of a single finger, which is nice for warming up in theory but I’d rather just use my finger. We’ve only used the purple plug a few times preferring to skip it and go right for the larger ones since it is so tiny.

I like to use the medium red plug as a warm-up plug more than the purple one. It stays in much easier and is that wonderful in-between size that Goldilocks likes to tell us of, it is rarely too big or too small. This is probably both mine and Onyx’s favorite of the three. The large black plug is still smaller than some other anal toys I own, but is also often too big to go to immediately. Since it, like all the plugs, is more elliptical than round even though it is somewhat thick it still feels smaller than other toys with comparable thickness.

Review: Sidekick 1

Not all butt plugs are created equal. I’ve been spoiled by plugs like Njoy Pfun and LELO Bob whose bases are made to nestle perfectly between butt cheeks, making wearing the plugs pleasurable and not making the skin of my ass right around my asshole sore. While the Sidekick 1 is a nice size and shape the round base just makes it awkward for any type of wear.

I should note, however, this is a personal preference and, I think, highly dependent on the size of one’s derrière. Since I’m a large person all around and have quite a large ass I think this makes it even more uncomfortable than if my butt was smaller. Oblong bases are far more comfortable in general for any sort of long-term wear, but your level of discomfort with a round base may be far different than mine.

Luckily, you don’t have to use this plug just for wearing. Since it is fairly small, an excellent starter-plug either generally for beginners or while working up to a larger plug or other anal toy. I have fairly large hands and it’s not much longer than my middle finger and about the width of two fingers.

The first little bloop of the toy has a curve to it which is quite aesthetically pleasing, but I could not really notice it while it was inside me, it felt like any other straight plug, but that’s not a bad thing. The second teardrop-shaped section of the plug is the largest section, and quite enjoyable while inserting or thrusting. I found the neck is a little short for wear as well, but we’ve already established this plug isn’t for wear. Because the base is thick and fairly big for a small toy it is easy to hold on to which makes thrusting with this little plug fairly enjoyable as well.

The Sidekick is made out of 100% medical-grade silicone so it is non-porous, phthalate-free, and can be sterilized (see care instructions below). Silicone is one of the most body-safe materials for toys to be made out of, but it does attract lint and stray hair like nobody’s business so it’s always advisable to store in a bag or other safe place, and wash both before and after use. Silicone also retains temperature so you can run it under cool or warm water to attain the effect you desire.

Despite my annoyance with the base I actually really like this plug. While the Pfun Plug is by far my favorite plug ever, this plug is half the price and is quite enjoyable for what it is.

The Sidekick 1 is so numbered because there is also a Sidekick 2 which is longer and slightly thicker, so if you are attracted to this plug but think it is a little small for your anal experience level I would suggest taking a gander at that.

Review: Tantus B-Bomb

I enjoy anal play. A lot. With the right relaxation, lubrication, communication, and patience it can be absolutely wonderful. Thus I was super excited when Tantus sent me a B-Bomb to review. I really wanted to love it, and I did… mostly.


What’s not to love with Tantus’ own blend of premium platinum medical-grade silicone? It’s hypoallergenic, non-toxic, and can be completely sterilized so you can share silicone toys01 with a partner once sterilized. To sterilize see care instructions below.

I recently read some complaints about the squishyness of silicone, and to that I can only say that I enjoy the texture, it’s much less squishy than jelly (which is yucky anyway and you don’t want to put it in your body without a condom02 ), but obviously not going to be as hard as plastic, steel, or glass. I find Tantus’ silicone to be harder than some other blends.

Like many Tantus toys the B-bomb comes with a removeable vibrator that sticks right up the hole in the toy’s base. It is a one-speed bullet vibe that, since it’s removeable, you could also use separately from the plug on other areas that enjoy vibration or with the plug if you enjoy anal vibrations. Also, Tantus in all their wisdom has created a suction-cup attachment that you can get which fits into any of the slots in their toys made for bullet vibes, turning any bullet-compatible Tantus toy into a suction cup toy.


The pointyness of the plug worried me when I first got it, but that’s where the squishyness of silicone comes in handy, since it’s not made out of a hard material the point is not noticeable after you put it in your butt. The point is actually a positive in the respect that it makes the B-bomb very easy to insert since it is a gradual taper from the point to the rounded body. I found with a bit of non-silicone lube03 the B-bomb slides in nice and easy.

I thought the size and shape was extremely pleasurable, not too big but not too small either. It isn’t an intimidating toy in either respect which makes it great for beginners and is a great warm-up toy for those more experienced in anal adventures. The taper near the base helps it stay inside as any good butt plug should do, and that allows the sphincter to relax around it.

The problem I had with it, though–and what would change it from a three lotus rating to a four or even five–was the base. It is circular and fairly thick. While it is a very well made base I’m spoiled by my love for my Pfun Plug or Bob plugs which have bases that fit snugly between the ass cheeks. Since I have a rather large booty it is actually uncomfortable for me to wear a plug with a circular base for any long period of time.

Most of Tantus’ other plugs do have a more rectangular base which makes wearing them for longer than a few minutes quite comfortable, such as the Ryder, Infinity, or Tulip. The toys that do have more wearable bases, however, do not vibrate. If you aren’t planning on wearing the B-bomb for long, are looking for a vibrating plug, and especially if you’re looking for something fairly small and non-threatening for thrusting it is a fabulous and well made plug that would be a wonderful addition to any anal adventurer’s toybox.

Review: njoy Pfun Plug

The njoy Pfun Plug is my second njoy toy, and hopefully not my last. I am in awe of the gorgeous toys Njoy produces and (like so many others) covet the amazing Eleven more than just about any other toy out there. While the njoy line consists of quite a few plugs in different sizes the Pfun plug is the only one with multiple bulbs and has always looked particularly tempting to me.

The sleek look of cool steel is irresistible, and immediately after receiving my Pfun Plug I knew I wanted it in my butt. I’m not big on plugs, I prefer my anal in the form of thrusting for the most part, but I’ve always liked the look of plugs over anything else.

From past experiences I knew I would love the handle, as I’ve had trouble with round handles in the past. Round handles tend to be uncomfortable for wearing for extended or even brief periods of time, perhaps especially if your booty is rather large (though that’s my only experience with plugs so I don’t have anything to compare it to).

The Pfun Plug has a wonderful thin handle as you can see in the pictures, and the hole in the handle makes it easy to get hold of in order to pull it out. If you’ve ever had to try to grab hold of a lubed up plug and pull it out you’ll appreciate this wonderful removal-aid finger hole. The handle is somewhat long, however, which wasn’t an issue for me as my ass is well padded, but for those with less padding in the backside it may be uncomfortable to sit.


Now that I’ve covered the handle, let’s get to the actual insertable part of the plug! It has a wonderful curve to it, which lightly rapped against my g-spot whenever I walked or moved with it in. One of the wonderful things about anal plugs is that they tend to be unisex, hitting the g-spot in females and the p-spot/prostate in males (also called the male g-spot).

The firm steel is fairly thin, but feels bigger while inserted due to the hard material. While I didn’t have the Pfun Plug itself when we had the heat wave here in Seattle a couple months ago I know that it would have been lovely to slip in after letting it get cool in a bowl of water or the fridge for a few minutes.

I’m a big fan of the Pfun Plug which just goes to prove my need for the Eleven and, really, all other njoy products. If you’re in the market for a plug and like the feel of cool hard steel, or just want to experience a

Review: Tantus Alumina Revolve

Since I first heard of Tantus’ Alumina line I’ve been dying to try one. Unlike all other Tantus toys the Alumina line is made out of, can you guess? Aluminum, of course. My chance came in Alumina Revolve, a smooth sleek double-ended dildo.

Every product in the Alumina line is double-ended and screws together in the middle, where that little black band is in the picture above, which means that the ends of the four Alumina products can be swapped out for other pieces to make different toys. This is a very unique design, and of course means I covet all four Alumina toys.

Also unique to the Alumina line is their packaging. Other Tantus products come in very simple packaging, but the Alumina line has an elegant black box with silver writing and the shape of the toy outlined on the top in silver. Inside the toy itself is nestled in black foam and a slim instruction/care booklet. Still simple, but with a touch of class.

Tantus Alumina Revolve

Similar to glass and other metal toys aluminum has no give, so a little goes a long way as far as orifices are concerned. In my experience the harder the object the fuller the feeling you get from it, and Revolve is no exception. I found each side of the Revolve to be perfect for anal and vaginal penetration respectively.

The side with three graduated bulbs is wonderful for anal penetration, feeling similar to anal beads when used. The feeling of the anus expanding and contracting is highly pleasurable, and is my favorite type of anal stimulation, so these three hard bulbs were a delight. Graduated bulbs are also excellent for anal beginners, as well, because they allow the penetratee to be worked up slowly to larger objects.

The side with one bulb is excellent for both g-spot stimulation and kegel exercise. It can easily be angled just right to hit the g-spot, and the hard material is great for a variety of sensations from soft massage to hard grinding. The single bulb is the perfect size for me to grip with my kegel muscles and clocking in at half a pound it has a fair amount of heft without being too heavy for a beginner such as myself.

Not too long ago we had a heat wave here in Seattle, and on the hottest day when it got into the triple digits I put Revolve (along with a few other glass and metal toys) in the fridge to cool it down before slipping it inside me and letting it cool me down. It retains temperature quite nicely, which is why it was ideal for this. It can also be warmed, should you come home and find it extra chilly and not be in the mood, by running it under warm water. Simple as that.

Revolve is a wonderfully versatile toy that everyone should enjoy. A big huge thanks to Tantus for sending me Alumina Revolve to review!
